Board Corner: Nominations Sought for Board Seats


The process to elect members to the Teachers Retirement Board has begun. Two seats are available. Any current teacher, excluding those employed by the Milwaukee Public School District, may compete for the TR Board-Active Teacher Member seats. The terms of current members Jon Joslin and David Wiltgen expire in 2017. For an insider's perspective on the rewards of serving on the board, see Board Chair Robin Starck's column, Our Teachers Retirement Board Needs You!
